Last April I had the privilege of attending the Sinclair & Moore flower workshop in April. It was 3 days of arranging and learning valuable information about being very purposeful in everything – from Instagram posts to running a business. Steve Moore is a really inspiring person, designer, and business owner. I was really blown away by his story and his passion for creating beautiful events.
We worked with a different color palette each day. On Day 1 we created a compote vase arrangement using ivory, peach, and orange flowers. One of the things emphasized was making sure to create depth in an arrangement, so that not all of the flowers are on the same plane. There are lots of pretty spring flowers in this arrangement: daffodils, tulips, poppies, garden roses, carnations, and white spirea.
Day 2 involved creating a bouquet using a blush and plum color palette. I learned another technique to make a bouquet, which always excites me! Knowing a variety of ways to make a bouquet is helpful. Sometimes I combine techniques depending on the materials used. We used ranunculus, scabiosa pods, Quicksand roses, chocolate cosmos, and clematis in these arrangements.
On Day 3 we created a compote vase arrangement using the same color palette.
We rounded out the workshop with a large piece using lots of foliage. These were fun pieces to create because of all the texture involved. The colors were primarily pink and coral. In this arrangement are coral peonies, garden roses, pink snowberry, and anemones.
The wonderful husband and wife team of Scott O’Malley and Ashlee O’Malley photographed everyone’s arrangements at the Sinclair & Moore flower workshop. O’Malley Photographers create some truly beautiful images!
